Targeting Iran cultural sites will be war crime: People react to Trump

US President Donald Trumpís new threat to strike 52 important targets in Iran, including the cultural ones, has provoked a strong backlash, with many calling it a "war crime."

On Saturday, Trump said on Twitter that his military would hit "very important" targets related to Iran if the Iranians attempted to take retaliatory action against the US for the assassination of a senior military commander.

Major General Qassem Soleimani, the commander of the Quds Force of Iranís Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the second-in-command of Iraqís Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), were assassinated in US airstrikes in the Iraqi capital Baghdad on Friday.

Trumpís threat came after Iranian authorities said they would show a harsh response to the US strikes.

Many social media users were quick to say that deliberately attacking cultural sites would be a war crime.

Ryan Goodman, a former special counsel at the US Department of Defense also emphasized that targeting "the clearly-recognized historic monuments, works of art or places of worship" was a war crime.

Colin Kahl, former deputy assistant to President Barack Obama and national security adviser to ex-vice president Joe Biden said that "the Pentagon would not provide Trump targeting options that include Iranian cultural sites."

John G Hertzler, an actor and an author, reacted by saying that the American people "are not" behind Trump in response to a Twitterer, who said he backed the president.

Eugene Gu, a politically active user on social media, said "the President of the United States should never threaten on Twitter or anywhere else to target another countryís non-military cultural sites."

Meanwhile, groups of protesters took to the streets in Washington and other US cities on Saturday to condemn Trumpís order to conduct the airstrike in Iraq and to send about 3,000 more troops to the Middle East.

"No justice, no peace. US out of the Middle East," hundreds of demonstrators chanted outside the White House before marching to the Trump International Hotel a few blocks away.

Similar protests were held in New York, Chicago and other cities. Organizers at Code Pink, a women-led anti-war group, said protests were scheduled on Saturday across numerous US cities and towns.

Protesters in Washington held signs that read "No war or sanctions on Iran!" and "US troops out of Iraq!"
